I love making Mother’s Day crafts! Maybe it’s because my mom is creative too, but I just love making her handmade gifts. She always appreciates them, and it’s something I’ve done since I was a child. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d put together a collection of 12 Mother’s Day crafts that kids can make. Dads – if the kids haven’t started the handmade tradition yet, now is the time! These would also make great gifts for grandmas. (And even some of them for teachers!) To see the collection I put together, just click through the slideshow below!
